Zion Williamson should explore options to not play for the New Orleans Pelicans | NBA | THE HERD

  • Published: 15 May 2019
  • The New Orleans Pelicans won the NBA Draft Lottery last night and will presumably take Zion WIlliamson with the No.1 pick in this year's Draft, but Colin Cowherd thinks Zion should explore options to play somewhere other than in New Orleans.

      Lindros still entered the draft, he just refused to go to the team that drafted him. Lindros was my favourite player but it worked out better for the franchise (not the city) that traded him away

        He acts like New Orleans is a super small, abandoned city that nobody wants to go to

              I wouldnt go to NOLA if I where him either he'd sit under ads wing and most likely bust for the simple fact that he wouldnt grow on that team....

                David Griffin is the perfect guy to market to All Star players to surround Zion. Colin Cowherd is the biggest clown.

                  Kobe did it
                  Elway did it
                  Manning did it

                  He should do it

                        Trade Zion and Davis for Westbrook and Adams.

                          Wouldn't be so pessimistic, New Orleans, if Anthony stays, could be much more charming even for other players. Tough decision though for Zion

                            Zion Williamson must play in the Mecca of basketball - NYC. The Pelicans David Grifith [sic] seems a bit awkward or unlikeable. He should trade him; Not to Philly, but to Toronto! NBA superstars up in Toronto often enjoy the fact that they are heroes not just to a single city, but to thousands of cities and towns. Not that we need him- we have the best all-around player in the NBA: Kawhi Leonard, not to mention a deep bench and awesome starting support. #wethenorth

                                          Colin Coward... You are truly a PERFECT example of what is wrong with the sports media today... and a microcosm of what's wrong with our country. What you are doing is encouraging Zion to act on your cowherdly plan to UNDERMINE the entire lottery process, and what it is actually designed to do. FYI... All sports drafts are DESIGNED to equalize talent across the league... Not play favorites to big markets so that only the "chip leaders" stay the "chip leaders."

                                          You are concentrated narcissism... which is not a good look. You'd prefer the whole system be rigged so that large markets dominate... Then those audiences turn in to listen to your verbal diarrhea, which allows you to make more money.

                                          You words have obvious implications, and I would submit to you that your audience isn't nearly as stupid as you, or your producers think they are. We see through your weak attempts to steer public opinion.

                                          New Orleans will welcome that young man and his entire family with open arms, and feed them the best food they've ever eaten in their lives. He will wake up and motivate the beast that is Anthony Davis, and they will evolve the Pelicans to be as Dominant as the Saints are in the NFL.... You're worst nightmare... Woops... I guess the NFL making Pass Interference reviewable is actually your worst nightmare... Laissez les bons temps rouler bruh.

                                            Pelicans have a better coach and gm than those teams but they are really hating on them bad. Pelicans swept portland in playoffs and made it 2 second round so its possible to win a ring and drew brees was the highest paid player in nfl and pelicans have same owner so if hes really a superstar he could get big bucks and win same as drew brees did with saints now everyone loves them when before they had a superstar QB fans were wearing paper bags over their heads

                                              Everyone hating on all the reporters for not wanting him to be in NOLA .who wants to see a great player on a bad team?nobody, why would anyone want him to stay or even himself want to stay after Anthony Davis wants out so bad there's obviously something we don't know about the front office coach or whatever the problem is .not that it's a small market it's that it's a terrible team.zion would do great say with the Kings,Pacers, etc all small market teams

                                                Could Zion go to play in Europe ? He could get much more money than if he return to Duke. And after a year he could come to the draft.

                                                  The Lindros example was a horrible one. Quebec City moved to Colorado like 2 years after that and went on to win 3 Stanley cups while Lindros went nowhere with Philly

                                                    It’s so annoying how every single sports personality and analyst keep saying that Zion shouldn’t play in New Orleans and should go to a big market team like cmon give the guy a fukin chance what’s the point of having teams that aren’t big market then
